Desert Solitaire

Part of the joys of less-than-perfect weather (aka snow on the route) is that you have the whole mountain and route all to yourself! Beautiful, mellow climb up the E. Buttress with my friend Axel. Linked pitch 1 and 2. Simuled after pitch 3 all the way to the top. Car to Car 14 hrs.

I joined my dad JanG. and had a very memorable climb on the East Buttress. It was my first ascent of Mt. Whitney, but hopefully not my last. All things considered, it was a healthy challenge of endurance and technique. I'm proud to say that I've summited the highest peak in the continental US and was tested in the process.

Climbed with Luis, Miguel, and Joan. Two parties. Turned 8 pitches into 7, and soloed the last 3. I led the odd pitches. 5 hours 15 minutes to summit. Such a beautiful climb!

Climbed with Joan, Miguel , and Will . As two parties, Miguel and Joan, and Will and me.
We did it in 7 pitches, soloing the last part (4th class with an easy 5.5 movement).
Good day, sunny in the morning, and light snow storm in the afternoon.

Third time up Whitney, in a pretty mellow day from Upper Boy Scout, sometime in the late 90s. Did the direct start. Good fun.

Awesome climb! My fiance's first long, alpine type climb. She did great! It was also her first 14er. Perfect weather. No issues.

24 hour day. I missed my party, and had to day hike to meet them at iceberg lake. After shivering in the dark for a few hours we hiked up for the route. Three pitches from the top a thunderstorm started. After that we went a lot faster. Great day, long day.
